About Karen :)

I consider myself a “Novice Noticer.” Truly believing that God is present and working in my life- here and now- I’m simply trying to notice more often. I try to see what God may be showing me in daily life: in my relationships, in nature, through experiences, and in the delightful moments when I simply feel God’s loving presence. 

Are you simply soul searching?My prayer is that God may work through my own seeking to bless your search and uplift your spirit.

Hi, I’m Karen, and I’d like to speak to the manager. (I’m joking, of course, but aren’t those Karen memes hilarious?)

As you read my blog posts, you will soon discover that I love my daily practice of walking with God and then writing about the insights and lessons I receive along the way.

My life has been a wonderful adventure, as I have served in a variety of ministry vocations, customer service, and shop management. In 2015 I experienced the struggles and blessings of ovarian cancer. Currently I am semi-retired and enjoying life as a wife, mom, and Grammy. I am blessed to support my husband Jim, who serves as a Lutheran pastor, and to create and lead retreats for various groups.

I am a regular writer for the ELCA quarterly devotional published by Augsburg Fortress, Christ in Our Home. Courses in Spiritual Foundations and Spiritual Companioning (through the Dominican Center at Marywood) have deepened my own faith journey and spirituality.

Thanks for stopping by!
